Martha Nussbaum to Deliver NEH Annual Jefferson Lecture in Humanities
“The Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities, established by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in 1972, is the highest honor the federal government confers for distinguished intellectual achievement in the humanities.” For Osher Institutes, the Jefferson Lecture is a great opportunity to utilize NEH public programming, as it is open for local members who would like to attend and is also streamed live online and archived so that OLLIs throughout the country can participate.
The 2017 lecture will be held in Washington DC, at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, on May 1st at 7:30pm Eastern Time. Martha C. Nussbaum, renowned philosopher, distinguished author and law professor has been selected to deliver the Jefferson Lecture and will discuss the Powerlessness and Politics of Blame.
